It was a long hard road for Urban to get to Nashville. The popular country music star was born in New Zealand. Urban rose to fame in the small country music scene of Australia. He began growing in popularity with his talents in singing, songwriting and mastery of instruments such as guitar, mandolin and drums. In 1992, Urban moved to Nashville to pursue his dreams further. He could land gigs as a studio player in Nashville, which helped jump-start his career in country music. Urban had plenty of battles and hills to climb, overcoming drug addiction. He could use his love of music to go "cold turkey" leading to the production of his first album and huge wins at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2001, which made him a well-known name.
The rise to fame was fast and furious with his album getting seven charts topping singles. With a growing U.S. fan base and critical acclaim, Urban was becoming one of the most popular country stars around the world. He was awarded the 2005 Country Music Association (CMA) Entertainer of the Year and also voted the CMA and Academy of Country Music (ACM) Male Vocalist of the Year. Songs which helped him rise to stardom in country music include "Only You Can Love Me This Way," "Stupid Boy," "But for the Grace of God," "Somebody Like You," and "Better Life." Keith Urban tickets quickly become one of the highest demand concert tickets in country music and still are over ten years later.
Though Keith Urban did not take home any awards at the 2011 CMA awards he is quoted as being extremely excited to head out on the road for his "Get Closer" tour. Over the years Urban has toured with Bryan Adams, The Eagles, , Carrie Underwood, The Dixie Chicks, Taylor Swift, John Mayer and Sugarland. He was dated supermodel Niki Taylor before falling in love and marrying the talented actress Nicole Kidman and having two children. He is still able to write his popular songs of heartache, love and pain, which were a major factor in his rise to country music stardom.
